    The more information you can give the better along with a picture if possible.

    Also.Many a old working reel handle from a useless old reel can be made to fit another reel with very careful use of a small file of the right shape.I have probably done this two dozen times at least in my 50+ years of fishing and "fixin" mine and others reels.Also handles can often be made and repaired with homemade parts by most folk that "Work on things".With all of the modern glues and epoxies,it is far easier today.

    If you ain't a old mechanic like me,you just might know one or someone with a useless old reel with a handle you can fit.Just remember."Slow and careful with constant checking".Also never forget that it is very hard to "undo" any file work!

    I love you Brothers and Sisters.peewee
